The Goddess Project

The fact that the civilizations of Mesopotamia date back to 4000 BCE, fascinates me. When I look at a historic timeline, they are so far ahead of all the other major cultures we study.

The major female deity in Babylon was Ishtar, the star. (Above her head are the symbols for the Sun, Moon and Star) She is often shown with  the Babylonian winged lion and a pair owls.
